Blog Content Research

Question You will see some changes to this Blog soon.  Generally I have been posting articles with MANY details in written form with an occasional video thrown in.  I am thinking of doing MORE videos in the future with maybe a little less writing when it comes to Tips and possibly Reviews.  My question for the readers is what would you rather see?  Do you prefer videos or written posts or both?  Please leave your comments below.

  • Hey Ricky, Videos are GREAT. but put your perspective in on them. That's what's key to engage people and give it a personal touch.

    Lookin' forward to what ya got comin'.

  • Tim – Great point with the suggestion of a brief paragraph explanation. I will implement this.

    As far as the downloadable videos go, I'll take a look at it. Nothing beats the quality of a Flash video. I can get some decent results with an AVI and the use of a good Codec. Also thinking of using Vimeo (I think they will host AND allow users to download the video.)

    Josh – I agree, perspective is good. Thinking about doing voice with the videos which should definitely add some perspective. :-)

    Thanks to both of you….keep the comments coming! Feedback is GOOD!

    The videos are much better. If a picture is woirth a thousand words, then what is a video? A million words?

    I prefer the Flash. Youtube, Vimeo and similar sites are blocked by the corporate firewall, to make sure we don't waste time watching cats play the piano.

    Love the blog. Either way keep up the good work.

    Vimeo is blocked here too.
    i can extract the SWF file from browser cache but the video controller is lost and i cant navigate the video. each time i want to jump to the moment i'm interested, i have to watch the video from beginning.any workaround for this?

  • Here's a simple way of keeping the content fresh and relevant on blogs, especially niche blogs using a easy to install WordPress plugin, Automatic Blog WordPress plugin. Pulls FULL articles from ArticleBase.com including “authors box” so there are no copyright issues. Read review at my blog.

  • I just checked out Automatic Blog WordPress plugin. Pulls content right from article directories. Great program if your managing multiple blogs as an internet marketer and don't have time to write original content for multiple niches. Better that RSS cause you get the whole article and folks don't bounce from you site when they click to read the whole article.
